Songs by Celine

This Friday, in honor of the concert I will be happily attending in Las Vegas (w/my little family, not with WG) on Sunday (VEGAS, baby!), I present you with some lyrics from my favorite Celine Dion songs (yes, I know it's cheesy. No, I don't care.). It's songs like these that have made me the way I am about love. And I'm entirely okay with that.

The Power of Love
We're heading for something
Somewhere Ive never been
Sometimes I am frightened
But Im ready to learn
Of the power of love

The sound of your heart beating
Made it clear
Suddenly the feeling that I can't go on
Is light years away

It's All Coming Back to Me Now
But you were history with the slamming of the door
And I made myself so strong again somehow
And I never wasted any of my time on you since then

But if I touch you like this
And if you kiss me like that
It was so long ago
But it's all coming back to me
If you touch me like this
And if I kiss you like that
It was gone with the wind
But it's all coming back to me
(It's all coming back, it's all coming back to me now)

If You Asked Me To

Used to be that I believed in something
Used to be that I believed in love
It's been a long time since I've had that feeling
I could love someone
I could trust someone
I said I'd never let nobody near my heart again darlin'
I said I'd never let nobody in

But if you asked me to
I just might change my mind
And let you in my life forever
If you asked me to
I just might give my heart
And stay here in your arms forever
If you asked me to
If you asked me to

That's the Way It Is
When you question me for a simple answer
I don't know what to say, no
But it's plain to see, if we stick together
You're gonna find the way, yeah

So don't surrender 'cause you can win
In this thing called love

When you want it the most there's no easy way out
When you're ready to go and your heart's left in doubt
Don't give up on your faith
Love comes to those who believe it
And that's the way it is
(That's the way it is)

I Want You to Need Me
I want to be the face you see when you close your eyes
I want to be the touch you need every single night
I want to be your fantasy
And be your reality
And everything between

I want to be the eyes that look deep into your soul
I want to be the world to you
I just want it all
I want to be your deepest kiss
The answer to your every wish
I'm all you'll ever need

Of course, I hope she sings the Titanic Song and the Beauty and the Beast song and all of her other hits, but these are the ones, out of all of her songs, that have probably influenced me the most...especially that last one. I most certainly want to be needed.

"It's all coming back to me now" might just be my favourite song to karokee to. I'm not kidding. I sing with my eyes closed, on one knee and do a lot of chest beating, just like her. It's pretty fantastic. Have a great concert!

You don't have my favorite on here, "Because you loved me." I want that song to play at my wedding. That being said I do like "That's the way it is." I also love "My heart will go on." Have fun at the concert!

B - "It's all coming back to me now," when played in my house, requires a stoppage of all work and singing along at the top of my lungs (or the lungs of anyone else nearby).

SM - I left out so many good ones! This would have been a mile long post otherwise :).

I can't wait for tomorrow!

As it is Friday, and Celine is belting on my iPod....

Have you ever said a prayer
And found that it was answered
All my hope has been restored
I ain't looking anymore
Have you ever been...

Some place that you ain't leavin'
Somewhere you gonna stay
When you finally found the meanin'
Have you ever felt this way?

The time I spent waiting for something
That was heaven sent
When you find it don't let go
I know...

Have you ever been in love
You could touch the moonlight
You can even reach the stars
Doesn't matter near or far
Have you ever been in love?
Have you ever been in love?
So in love
